Penn State Coaches

Urge Players' Friends & Family:

"Wear White for JoePa"

11/10/2011 3:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1111_penn_state_exMultiple sources connected with the Penn State football team tell TMZ ... coaches held a meeting with players today and told them their friends and family should show support for ousted coach Joe Paterno by wearing white to the game on Saturday.

It's a bold move, considering there is a university-wide move for people in the stands to wear baby blue to support the alleged sexual assault victims of Jerry Sandusky

In addition to wearing white, we're told the coaches informed the team they may change the time and location of the pre-game meal because of security concerns.

And, we're told, the coaches assured the players there would be "enhanced security" for the game.

This team and school are idolizing a football couch who abused children in the the same locker room where the football players get ready for games and practices. And the school, coaches, students, or anyone else affiliated with the team, would rather brush under a rug for a good season and wear white for a pedophilia of a coach, instead of thinking of ways how to help the victims get counseling, but no worry about the football players and fixing their mental state. SERIOUSLY your JACKASS where are your priorities, what if it was the other coaches children Joe Paterno raped or abused would it still be brushed under the rug.... !

Are you people stupid enough to believe everything TMZ tells you? Obviously you didn't go to Penn State then. I know that the whole thing about wearing white is not true. I was at the game pretty and much every single student wore blue to support the victims. We also wore blue ribbons and some people even painted their bodies for them. Maybe you should check your facts before insulting an entire University for something that is not true
